ARSENAL will attempt to sign Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele at the end of the season, according to Don Balon.
Dembele moved to the Nou Camp for an initial fee of £96million last summer but has been hit by injury issues since his arrival.
According to a report in Don Balon, new Arsenal signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wants the club to bring Dembele to London, as he is desperate to team up with his former Borussia Dortmund colleague again.
The report goes on to state that Arsene Wenger has given the nod to a potential move, with the Gunners boss said to be looking to make Dembele the new Thierry Henry.
Barca are reportedly willing to allow the player to leave, following the arrival of Philippe Coutinho last month, while they are also confident of landing Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid this summer.
The one stumbling block could be the fee, with the Gunners looking to pay a fee in the region of £53.3m – a huge drop in the value of more than £40m.
